About me

Hi there! So let me tell you about myself... I'm a creative with over six years experience in art direction and design. In this time I've produced impactful campaigns and branding, working both in the charity and commercial sector.

Work

freelance    

Senior Art Director and Designer

As soon as I started freelancing I knew I was a great fit. I love working on a variety of different projects, with diverse agencies and clients – it sparks my enthusiasm and proactiveness, which in turn reflects in my work. The inner-geek and organisation-nerd in me has helped too.

At Open, along with my day-to-day responsibilities, I won creative pitches, lead projects and delivered engaging creative content.
